Arizona is a conservative state full of fiercely patriotic citizens who prize individual rights, limited government, and fiscal sanity. A friend recently surmised that Arizona may also be one of the most corrupt States due to the fact that we find ourselves at the mercy of a finger wagging Governor and 15 legislators who sold out Arizona to the Obama agenda.
The conclusion that Arizona is a conservative corrupt state is because in the 2013 legislative session Governor Jan Brewer led the 15 Republican Legistraitors to form a corrupt coalition with 100% of the Democrats in passing liberal progressive policies that harm economic growth and hand the state of Arizona over to the Federal Government. They passed the OBrewercare Medicaid Expansion, Common Core, and then increased taxes and spending by hundreds of millions of dollars leaving the Arizona budget with a structural deficit of 400 million dollars.
And they were rewarded with a campaign chest full of money.
The 15 LegisTraitors were each given donations averaging $35,000 each at a special fundraiser for those special republicans who voted for Brewer in that special session. And then they turned around and had a second fundraiser in October. They believe that all this money will ensure their re-election.
Many of the legislators in this Coalition of Corruption are in legislative districts with double-digit Republican majorities.
The fall of 2013 brought cries of defense and a chorus proclaiming “they” would not do it again – not in an election year. Well they did. The 2014 session solidified the coalition of corruption and they sat smirking with their arms crossed in committee meetings demanding and receiving a budget with a half a billion dollar structural deficit.
There is absolutely no reason that a heavily Republican district should have a Republican in Name Only (R.I.N.O.) in the State Legislature.
The Alliance rejects all excuses for these traitors and the victim mentality that we must elect those with an ‘R’ beside their name. We fully intend to fight for Arizona and for the election of principled conservatives.
Powered by audacity and conviction the grassroots throughout Arizona have stood up to criticism and belittlement and they have primary candidates for nine of the LegisTraitors.
We started with 15 LegisTraitors.
Three are not running in 2014. Michelle shame-to-the-name-Reagan desires a reward for her treachery with a promotion to Secretary of State. Rich Crandall moved and was replaced by good guy David Farnsworth (who we must re-elect). John McComish quickly surrendered when faced with primary candidate Tom Morrissey.
Ten candidates have stepped up to serve David Burnell Smith, Darla Dawald, John Fillmore, Sam Merano, Shawnna Bolick, John King, Jill Norgaard, Ralph Heap, Tom Morrissey, and John Kavanagh.
The Republican Primary Season begins in Arizona. The Chamber of Commerce, corporate welfare recipients, and crony capitalists have well funded candidates running against grassroot candidates fueled by the passion of Republican principles and the belief in state sovereignty.
